Welcome! My name is Johanna Peterson and I am a PhD candidate at the University of California, San Diego, studying modern Middle Eastern history. My larger research interests include migration, transnational connections, and gender. My PhD dissertation, “‘A Measure of All Nations’: Girls’ Schools and Constructions of Citizenship in Lebanon, 1919-1951,” examines the relationship between girls’ education and female citizenship during and immediately following the French mandate.
